Hey, I wanted to see if there was a way to change the names of a column that will only show up for the people who make that change? After talking with our Jira system admin, he was only sure that he could change it for everyone, but we have reason to change the report column names back and forth based on which project we are working in, as well as for the user who is generating the report, so we can’t change it system wide. Is there any way to do this in Jira Cloud currently? 

Just to be clear, I am not looking to change how the column or filter behaves, I want to show all the same information it normally does, but I want to change the default name of it for one or two users.

Thank you for your help,

  Sorry that is not possible.  You can do it with an App like easyBI or you can export the filter and change the name on the export.
